The paper provides an end user perspective of reliability and security issues of embedded systems being used in 21st century. Now-a-days, embedded systems controlled devices are increasingly popular in the industry as well as among the customers. Some of the very useful domains of its use are medical sciences, aviation, rail transport (metro), driverless car, critical data transfer etc. Due to complex nature in some of the embedded system applications, it is found that the defects in the system can cause life-threatening situations, delays can create huge financial impacts, and insufficient productivity can impact entire economies. It is increasingly sought a reliable and better performance embedded system to meet objective with desired level of accuracy and embedded system should be adoptable to environmental change by using artificial intelligence. This paper starts with the basic ideas of embedded system, its classifications and important applications with an emphasis on reliability and security of the embedded systems from the point of view of end users.

Abstract


The paper provides an end user perspective of reliability and security issues of embedded systems being used in 21st century. Now-a-days, embedded systems controlled devices are increasingly popular in the industry as well as among the customers. Some of the very useful domains of its use are medical sciences, aviation, rail transport (metro), driverless car, critical data transfer etc. Due to complex nature in some of the embedded system applications, it is found that the defects in the system can cause life-threatening situations, delays can create huge financial impacts, and insufficient productivity can impact entire economies. It is increasingly sought a reliable and better performance embedded system to meet objective with desired level of accuracy and embedded system should be adoptable to environmental change by using artificial intelligence. This paper starts with the basic ideas of embedded system, its classifications and important applications with an emphasis on reliability and security of the embedded systems from the point of view of end users.
